X Factor 2012: Caroline Flack says ‘people didn’t know what to do’ during Ella Henderson & James Arthur sing off

Caroline Flack has admitted that the X Factor studio was not a fun place to be last night.

The Xtra Factor presenter was as shocked as anyone else when it was revealed that Ella Henderson and James Arthur were in the bottom two and fighting for survival in the sing off.

Speaking on This Morning she revealed:

“It was an atmosphere that I have never quite experienced before in the studio.”

Caz added:

“There is usually a few boos or cheers but when Ella and James were standing on that stage and they announced that James was staying, there was no reaction, it was almost like this gasp of shock…they didn’t know what to do.”

She admitted that none of the team were ready to say goodbye to Ella and revealed that things were a bit chaotic behind the scenes of the talent show.

Flack said:

“We weren’t prepared for either of them to go. We should be prepared for everyone but in that way with Ella and James, we thought they would make it to the final….especially Ella.”

“There is always a shock exit and people assumed that Ella would be safe, they didn’t vote and unfortunately she left.”

Caroline admitted that she was sad to see Ella leaving last night and tweeted:

“That was a sad show. Ill miss ella xxx”
